holy crap that's thin. AND it has a color screen.

The mobile phone isn't that hot looking though.

Wow, that's small, shame about the price though, I don't have that much to drop on a music player.

Very cool though, if this had been out six months ago it would have been a serious possibility for my wallet and I.

Nice gadet. I think i'll wait for that price to come down though.

They still suck at battery times though...

Ah well, my Mini will do for now, though sadly my left earplug didn't want to play anymore. After just a month and a half.

Apple are good with pie, plain and simple. I buy a hot shoe shuffle no more than a month ago and now this thing of beauty is released. Hmph, none the less, the click wheel is inferior to the old touch sensitive buttons of my old iPod, so they haven't got it completely right.

Gahgghgh!

Maybe keep the swearing down a bit, I don't think that was really appropriate.

i dont want to turn this into a rant but i hardly think th word c*nt has a place anywhere that isnt the inside of a hardcore porno.

theres no need for such language, its not big or clever. and trying to defend it just shows immaturity.

I don't think it will be available for a few more weeks. and it's flash memory not a hard drive. amazing.

Call me what you want, c*ntface :p

You just have to relax a little man...theres no need to be some internet hardass just 'cause someone felt like saying a word that i bet most 13 and under kids dont even know anyway.

Just because you were brought up in a protected environment where you couldnt even say "sucks" doesnt mean you have to ruin it for the rest of us...

Not trying to offend, really, just trying to have you see it the way we do.

And they use that word in softcore porns too...


I dont know much between the flash drive and the other whatjiggamajigit, which ones better?

Hmm. This is the first product that Apple have produced which interests me. The armstrap, combined with its small size actually gives it a purpose for people who are not fashion victims :p

fashion victims

Which is what 90% of the people who have iPods rather than the other quality mp3 players out there are...

I had an iPod (till it died 1 month out of warranty), but now have moved on to superior products. The only thing that makes me regret not having a Pod now is Logitechs spanking new Bluetooth headphones. Ive wanted something like that for AGES, and it annoys me quite a lot that they are usable with iPods only.

I personally would rather getthe sony ericsson w800i (http://www.sonyericsson.com/w800/mainpage.aspx) because i need a new phone anyway...if anyone can prove to me that it would be better to get the ipod nano and a regular cell phone, i will, because i love the nano, but i love the cell phone. So now im confused.

this site is PG 13+ though and swearing is a strikeable offence so using that language isnt really required, and anyway swearing for the sake of swearing doesnt make you big it makes you an idiot.

on topic:

my stance against apple will stop me getting this as good as it looks

Ugh, all you kids need to settle down a little. Why, back in my day you couldn't venture into RM without being *whacked* by Wazz or someone else. The times, they are a changing.

Anyhoo, when my iPod dies (it'll have to happen some day) I'll probably try to replace the battery. This will fail utterly and I'll move onto a different mp3 player. Hopefully with an inbuilt phone. And removable memory. And a nice handy screen.

Until then, my iPod will continue to undergo surgery until there's nothing left.

Portent is a PG-13 forum and if you read the rules swearing is a strikeable offence.

Normally I'd give out a warning and move on, however in this case and after reading your other comments you've just earned yourself a strike.

This is the first of three and comes with a 24hour ban, two more and you'll be banned from Warseer.


all me what you want, c*ntface

Please don't flame other members of the site, do it again and you'll earn yourself a strike.
Yes they are common words and 99% of the people on this site know them, however this is a PG-13 forum and anybody with a half a brain should A) know the rules and B) have a sufficient vocabulary to be able to use a substitute and still get across what they wanted to say.

That the expensive one.

The smaller iPod nano (the same price as the iPod mini) is only 2GB.

So you gave a choice. For 140 you can have either a 4GB mini, or a 2GB nano.

also, is this designed to replace the iPod mini? It doesn't seem to be on the UK store at all...

Pray tell which one? If it doesn't do a form of lossless it isn't worth squat to me, and AAC sounds better on my stereo than WMA (far fewer artifacts).

I don't mean this to be flame bait, but given what's out there, and my criteria, is there a superior player? (Oh, disk space is a premium -- 40 GB or more please).

I know this means I'm not getting a nano. Heck, what ticks me off is that the BMW isn't putting iPod support in the next car I'm planning to buy :(

Yes, though they'll upgrade the line in 6 months or so I expect so that the nano is the same size (and price) as the mini (which are being sold off cheaply, have you seen how many prize giveaways have them?). Black nano = drool.

I'll admit the nano is nice, but hopefully if a few mini's are being sold of cheapo anywhere i might invest.
